    My wife is a Petty Officer in the RAN, and just showed me her new ID lanyard...I laughed out loud, and with excitement at the pending arrival of my relic SS lid, she actually got the joke.

    Of course I know what it is meant to mean!!!

    WO=Warrant Officers, SS hmm . . . I don't think it's SchutzStaffel!. Thanks to Google I know what it is now, too. Too funny!

    My first thought, due to my USNavy background, where SS=Submarine, was that it was a submarine fleet mess. Wrong!

    The law of unintended effects is at work everywhere!

    I honestly did not know that.

    "SS" for me will always have the one infamous connotation.

    I remember as a digger we used to have mess duties up at the SGTs mess whenever they had a function.....the joke at th time was, "well its the SGTs mess, let them clean it up!"

    Though th up side of doing duties for them, was at the end of th night, the rather drunk SGTs would buy cartons for us to say thnks...the best night was 16 cartons between the four of us!!!
